Bobbi Brown Electric Violet High Shimmer Lipgloss
Bobbi Brown Electric Violet High Shimmer Lipgloss ($23.00 for 0.24 fl. oz.) is described as a “pink with violet pearl.” It’s a semi-opaque medium-dark pink with fuchsia-pink shimmer and a glossy shine. It’s a little cooler-toned (more fuchsia) compared to MAC Dare to Dare, so MAC If It’s Pink comes a bit closer but still pinker. MAC Totally Bang is also similar but darker.
I’m a big fan of Bobbi Brown’s newest gloss; it took me a bit surprise, much as my appreciation for Chanel Glossimers happened over time, but these are my latest go-to when I want something super sparkling to wear alone or over a lipstick. It’s a non-sticky formula that moisturizes, wears for four hours or so, and looks like shimmering water when worn. I love that the shimmer isn’t gritty–you won’t feel rough glitter/shimmer as the gloss wears off at all–and it doesn’t turn tacky over time either. Electric Violet is really lovely over a red, especially blue-based ones.
